The Eagles announced several roster moves relating to the practice squad on Wednesday:
• Signed DT Noah Elliss
Defensive tackle Noah Elliss spent Training Camp with the team and was placed on Injured Reserve following the preseason game against the Browns before being released. The 6-foot-4, 346-pound Elliss, who is the brother of Eagles linebacker Christian, was originally signed by the Eagles as a rookie free agent in 2022 out of Idaho and spent the entirety of his first season on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list.
• Signed LB Brandon Smith
The former Penn State Nittany Lion was drafted in the fourth round of the 2022 NFL Draft by the Carolina Panthers.
In his rookie season, the 6-foot-3, 241-pound Smith appeared in 12 games, playing primarily on special teams. He finished the year with eight tackles after suffering a season-ending ankle injury.
Smith was waived by the Panthers on August 29, 2023. The Eagles signed him to the practice squad on October 12 and he was released this past Friday.
• Released CB Tiawan Mullen
Cornerback Tiawan Mullen has been on the Eagles' practice squad twice this season.
The undrafted free agent was a member of the Chargers in the 2023 preseason. Mullen had 11 tackles and two pass deflections in three games this summer. He led the game in tackles against the Rams in the preseason opener. Mullen also spent time on special teams.
Mullen was a standout defensive back at Indiana, being named a first-team All-American in 2020 and first-team All-Big Ten in 2021.
• Panthers signed OL Brett Toth from the Eagles' practice squad to their active roster
Prior to this season, Toth played in 17 career regular-season games, including 11 in the 2021 season. A versatile lineman, Toth has snaps at center, right guard, right tackle, and even as a tight end under his belt.
The 6-foot-6, 304-pound Toth originally joined the Eagles as a rookie free agent in the 2019 season. A first lieutenant in the U.S. Army, Toth received a waiver to pursue his NFL career while serving as an active-duty soldier. He worked as an instructor at Temple's ROTC program in the offseason.
